The Post-Master's Nurse Anesthesia certificate program prepares Registered Nurses to become Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists and requires 27 months of concentrated theory and clinical practice. The program is built upon a core of biophysical sciences, pharmacology, principles of anesthesia, and professional role issues. Graduates of the program are prepared to deliver all types of perioperative anesthesia care to patients of all ages in a wide variety of health care settings and
are eligible to take the National Certifying Examination. The program consists of 18 credits of graduate-level course work upon completion of required prerequisites and approximately 1000-1500+ hours of direct anesthetic management.
For information concerning Phase I required prerequisite courses (22 credit hours), please contact the College of Nursing, Graduate Program, (330) 972-7555.
Applications to the Nurse Anesthesia (Post MSN) Certificate program are accepted on a rolling basis.
All assistantships (and any fellowships) are awarded through the academic department. Students interested in obtaining an assistantship must apply. New students may indicate on their online application for admission that they would like to be considered for an assistantship. Current students must contact the academic department for application information. Each department may have different requirements for assistantship applicants, so all students should contact the academic department to determine these particular requirements. Only those students fully admitted to a master’s or doctoral degree-seeking program are eligible for a graduate assistantship. Students admitted as non-degree seeking or to a certificate program may not hold an assistantship.
Paying for college is a vital part of the education process. It is important to be informed of the many sources of aid available. Student loans are available to degree-seeking graduate students. Information on student loans can be found through the Office of Student Financial Aid. The Office of Student Financial Aid is located in Simmons Hall.
Current tuition and fees schedules can be found through the Office of Student Accounts.
